Yes, it does. From the Red Line Oil site, the mfgs of Water Wetter...

http://www.redlineoil.com/products_coolant.asp

Water Wetter® Super Coolant
WaterWetter® is a unique wetting agent for cooling systems which reduces coolant temperatures by as much as 30ºF. This liquid product can be used to provide rust and corrosion protection in plain water for racing engines, which provides much better heat transfer properties than glycol-based antifreeze. Or it can be added to new or used antifreeze to improve the heat transfer of ethylene and propylene glycol systems. Designed for modern aluminum, cast iron, copper, brass and bronze systems.

· Doubles the wetting ability of water
· Improves heat transfer
· Reduces cylinder head temperatures
· May allow more spark advance for increased torque
· Reduces rust, corrosion and electrolysis of all metals
· Provides long term corrosion protection
· Cleans and lubricates water pump seals
· Prevents foaming
· Reduces cavitation corrosion
· Complexes with hard water to reduce scale

Dam curt faster than me I was looking up oils too no one really declares what they do for a wet clutch and seems important to me since its one of the reasons you have to get the right oil

Engine Ice is way better than Water Wetter. You'll find very few racers using Water Wetter these days. Engine Ice will drop your engine temps 10 degrees over Water Wetter.

Also wouldn't they be more detrimental to your rotors? I am not at all saying im right just speaking hypothetically.
In reference to the the original question, here's what the mfg says about them.

http://www.ebcbrakes.com/mb-roadracing-brakes.html

EBC Extreme Pro™

Perfect for Street AND for Racing!

Click here for dyno results and the proof plus Daytona results
The latest in sintered metal fusion technology is now available for all modern sportbikes and road race fitments from the high tech EBC plant in Cleveland Ohio USA.

Our research lab has been working over the last year to improve certain aspects of our sintered pad range for roadracing and have come up with some interesting new materials. The new Extreme Pro range has been dyno tested, race track tested, road tested and was used by 8 of the top 20 riders in the Daytona 200 races in Spring 2008. The new material heat cycles better, feels better at the brake lever, last longer and beds in faster.


Extreme Pro pads are ideal for faster street bikes and race bikes alike but as they include many new additives and slower manufaturing processes they are more expensive and target the no compromise rider or race team
